I made my first attempt at cake pops and the instructions seemed easy enough; however, not so if you run into issues. The candy melts don’t often melt so that it “drips” when you dunk the cake into it. How do you get that affect? I noticed that certain colors are thicker than others. Also, the drying time from the time you dunk and decorate pretty much needs to be immediate. Any suggestions?
After coating my cake pops these bubbles appear... Those are air bubbles and happen a lot. The oils or butter from the cake pops try to get out and those bubble start to appear. You can't really avoid air bubbles from coming unless you take out the butter or oil all together. However, when air bubbles strike the grease gets out of the pops and doesn't leave them tasting so good. While the coating is wet, use a toothpick to pop each air bubble when it appears. The grease is still here and the cake pops have not lost their flavor.
